Neck pain in the morning can be due to straining the neck while asleep. During certain stages of sleep, the muscles are contracted. One option would be to use a firm flat mattress and a flat pillow—or preferably no pillow in those cases where morning neck pain is prominent. I would strongly recommend you describe this condition to your primary care physician so that he or she can refer you to the appropriate specialist who can properly evaluate you and review your options.

We had about 12 inches of snow or more and five foot snow drifts. The super cold air is coming down from Canada now. ( I don't know how you take that cold, cold air Lene! ) Wind chill to be -23 in the morning.
We bellied out our Arctic Cat today, so we started up the old backhoe and made one trip down the drive and back. The steering on the backhoe is messed up now, so we put it back in the out building and used the Arctic Cat to clean up the mess. That took a while, as our driveway is a quarter of a mile long.

Hope everyone is safe and warm. This was a big, bad blizzard and affected a lot of people.
What does one do if she experiences major chest pains and medical examinations reveal no heart or BP abnormalities? This is a particularly good question because it applies to all fields of medicine, and to all people who at some time in their lives will become patients (Yes, even doctors). If a person is experiencing symptoms that are not accompanied by signs of disease, or evidence in the form of an abnormal test, the diagnostic work-up will sometimes cease. Yet the patient still has the symptoms. What should be done? First, were all the elements of your complaint dealt with? Please see my prior posting about preparing for a visit to a cardiologist . It is appropriate for a visit to any physician. Second, what constitutes a full work-up for chest pain? This is actually different depending upon the likelihood of different processes causing the discomfort. Arteriosclerotic coronary artery disease is quite unlikely in very young people (but congenital disease may be more ...
